The Townsville Hospital Foundation has a proud army of 130 Volunteers that assist patients and families in 15 areas and wards throughout The Townsville Hospital Campus. Volunteers perform in accordance with a prescribed Code of Conduct and undertake performance reviews annually to ensure that services complement the requirements and performance standards of The Townsville Hospital.We are proud of the achievements and milestones we have attained against our Strategic Plan during the 16/17 financial year.
